One of the best ways to be Thrifty is to reduce waste. I hate brown bananas, they make me gag, but they make wonderful banana bread, or pop them into the freezer and make a fruit smoothie with them.

  1. A Thrifty Mom I made your banana muffins. They are so good I can’t stop eating them. Will make them again.
    thank you for sharing.

  2. When my bananas get like that I freeze them whole in the skins. Then when I want to make banana bread I defrost them in a bowl and after about 30 minutes I cut the bottom off squish the banana goo into the mix. When you do that it comes out like a thick goop and you don’t have to mash it up.

  3. We love banana bread here! (and of course who doesn’t love cream cheese!!! U0001f61cU0001f61c)
    I cringed a little watching the beginning—Was that a knife by the little one’s foot?? U0001f62e

  4. I have been making this for a couple of years since I found it on your website – they are amazing!!!

  5. Haha “oh you dropped it on the floor, but it’s okay because I swept before we started this.”

  6. AND the 2 dozen muffins are GONE…. kids are waiting for the next pan to come out. LOL they never last long with a hungry family of 7

  7. Since discovering this recipe the first time that you posted it (a few years ago?) It is the only kind of banana bread that we make! So yummy!

  8. We’ve all left SOMETHINGS out, lol, even when things go wrong, they still come out yummy and oh so right! U0001f602U0001f602

    Love from Tennessee!

  10. I have at least 6 bananas in my freezer and have been looking for a simple recipe like this! You have PERFECT timing! Thanks!

  11. I didn’t know spraying the muffin liners that they would come easier. Gonna try that next time. Thanks

  12. I’ve always wanted to make banana bread but have never gotten around to it…..hmmm might have to try to make some this weekend. It sounds so yummy!! 🙂

  13. This is my ultimate all time favorite banana bread recipe! I’ve been making it since the first time I saw it posted. My kids love it too. They can’t even wait for the muffins to get out of the pan and cool down!

  14. This is the BEST banana bread EVER!!!! I’ve made it more times than I can count and it tastes so good every time!

  15. I wish I wouldve had this recipe one hour ago. I am literally taking two loaves out of the oven in 5 minutes!

  16. I just found these muffins on Pinterest and made them right away with the yucky bananas I have been avoiding all weekend.  They were SO good!  My four year old ate three muffins and I had to stop him from having another.  This is my new go-to banana bread recipe!  Thanks so much for sharing.
